Los Angeles Gladiators have set their sights on the Overwatch League playoff picture. We talk to Chan-hyung “Fissure” Baek about the teams hopes and some strategy on his Winston mastery. Here is what he had to say.
The final weekend of Stage 4 saw a lot of intense matches and a lot of changes to the teams gunning for playoff hopes. We are now set and have our final six teams ready. However, Stage 4 showed a lot of promise on what this league could be in the future. With teams coming back like the Dallas Fuel, and the L.A. Valiant topping NYXL in the last match.
What an absolute culture flip from the Dallas Fuel in the last stage of the OWL Season 1. After going through countless trials and tribulations as a team, it finally looked like the 4-24 Fuel were firing on all cylinders over the course of Stage 4, led by Mickie and his brawny Brigitte. Taimou and OGE were found their former glory and were looking crisp and clean, Seagull had improved upon his already rock-solid D.Va play, and HarryHook and Unkoe stayed sharp in the backline.

The first game of Thursday evening’s events was also the most important, with the Houston Outlaws and Philadelphia Fusion going at it to secure their spot in the playoffs. Here’s how the day went down.

If you disagree, let me know. If you agree, well let me know too so we can laugh at those who don’t. Read more …
The Overwatch World Cup approaches. For Americans, this means that the whole missing out on the FIFA World Cup thing isn’t really a big deal. (No, it doesn’t! We should still be sad.)
Anyways, there have been plenty of rumors and lots of news about who will represent Team USA, and we’re here to try and put what we know into one location.
The first day of S4W4 came to a close with a bang. Boston snuck by Seoul to get their first win, Shanghai continued their winless season (though they came the closest they’ve ever been to victory against the Florida Mayhem,) and the Houston Outlaws shocked the Fuel in a convincing 3-1 victory. Crazy stuff! Read more …
This week’s episode of OWL Things Considered is out and is focused on player representation in the Overwatch League. This week’s guest is the show’s guest is Ryan Morrison, who is a founding partner of both the Morrison Lee law firm and Evolved Talent Agency. We dig into Ryan’s background, specifics around player representation, punishments, the tier two and three scenes, and some random questions towards the end that I really wanted to ask but couldn’t think of a category for.
